Question about kidblog
 
Hi,
I just finished checking out a link which was sent by Vicoria-Ladybug which  she had shared as one of her favourite sites. It is a site that allows you to open a class blog for free. In other words, your pupils will become bloggers and communicate among themselves and their teacher in this site (which is blocked to the outside world-I think??).
 
Anyway here is the link to the site
http://kidblog.org/home.php to whoever missed her post.
 
I really liked the idea and I have already added a class of mine for next year, the thing is that I am lacking ideas. I was wondering if there is someone out there who is interested in sharing ideas on how to get them started and how to take advantage of such a great tool.
I have decided to try it out for my eighth graders which are considered to be on a high level.
Thanks,
Debbie

Hi Debbie

Here are some sites which help to understand what-how-why about blogging with students. These tips are true for any blog, not only Kidblog.
